Today’s Action: Vote them out

Late last night, the news dropped: Mitch McConnell appears to have secured the votes to block all witnesses from Trump’s impeachment trial. With only fewer than the four needed Republican votes to join Democrats in demanding transparency, thus concludes McConnell’s promise to conduct a complete cover-up of Trump’s crimes.

We fought hard to sway the minds of Republicans in the Senate – but ultimately, they fell in party line behind their criminal leader. Therefore, there’s only one way forward: we must vote them out in November 2020.

We only need to gain four seats to retake control of the Senate. SwingLeft has identified the seven most vulnerable Senate seats (“Super States”) in the 2020 election. Take action TODAY to register Democratic voters in those states, in-person or from your home!

It is truly a dark day, watching crooked party loyalty win out over fairness, transparency, and keeping a criminal in power. But as we’ve learned under three years of Trump, although we don’t succeed every time, progressive values are always worth fighting for.

The vast majority of Americans wanted to see witnesses at Trump’s trial, in order to expose the truth once and for all. We must hold Republicans accountable for the cover-up they have conducted. And while history may remember their crimes appropriately, it’s the present-day that we’re concerned about: we want them out before they have a chance to cause even more damage.

Take action today to show the GOP we’re watching and responding. Since Republicans haven’t taken their jobs and obligations seriously, we’ll replace them with people who will.

We only need four seats to flip the Senate back to Democratic, showing Republicans how we feel about their cover-up impeachment trial. Sign up today to register voters in person, over the phone, or via snail mail in the states with the most vulnerable Senate seats.
